1º de Agosto vs TP Mazembe post-match incident[edit]

Five people were reportedly killed after the 45.000 capacity crowd match on Saturday 15th September 2018, including two children who were trampled and/or suffocated to death while exiting the stadium. Before the match begun, supporters called a radio station urging the organization to open all gates after the match ended for fear of a tragedy and after going through similar ordeals in the past. The Angolan Ministry of Youth and Sports in a statement regreted the incident, expressed condolences to the relatives and vowed to launch an investigation. On their part, the club's management promised to assist the relatives in funeral expenses.[2][3][4]
